Bronze sculpture details
This sculpture presents the graceful big cat in an extremely elegant sculptural form: Aesthetic skills meet precision where the abstract lines still indicate the strong muscles of the animal.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
In his professional life, Heinz Rupp was one thing above all: a master of the small form. After completing his training as a steel engraver, goldsmith and studying at the ‘Art and Craft School’ in Pforzheim, Rupp worked as a jewelery designer for over three decades. In 1997, Rupp set himself even “bigger“ challenges by becoming active as a sculptor and painter. It soon showed that Rupp could also achieve great things in this segment of work.
